Supernatural returns to UK screens on E4

The hit show Supernatural is set to return to UK screens in the New Year. The popular American drama series has been without a home after Sky dropped the series earlier this year.

According to a press release from Channel 4, the ninth series of Supernatural will now be broadcast on E4 in "early 2015".

The popular show, created by Erick Kripke, follows the adventures of the Winchester brothers as they try to hunt down the monsters, demons and ghosts that inhabit the back roads of America. Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles take the leading roles, assisted by Misha Collins.

Supernatural has been shown on several channels since it first aired in the UK. ITV broadcast the first four seasons on sister channel ITV2 before BSkyB secured a deal to show the next four seasons on Living and Sky Living. Sky eventually decided to axe the show in March.

Loyal fans will be delighted that E4 has agreed a deal with Warner Bros. International Television Distribution to bring the show back to UK screens in 2015. An exact date for the debut of the ninth season has not been confirmed but it is expected to air in January.

The channel 4 statement read: "E4 has announced the recruitment of demon hunters Sam and Dean Winchester in an attempt to combat the supernatural forces which are expected to descend upon the channel in early 2015."
